Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night but it was amazing! Highly recommend it & be sure to dine in & take a cooking course! The grounds were grand & the rooms were beautiful. The staff was very friendly & helpful.

Fantastic staff, amazing food, and a very comfortable bed. Ballymaloe is just a beautiful place to escape to. My only advice is to sit for dinner around 8 at the latest, we sat at 8.45 and by the time we were finished our main courses the staff were setting the tables around us for breakfast. Tea and coffee weren't offered...

An amazing weekend, such a lovely place with fabulous food, atmosphere and entertainment. Our 7 month old was spoiled rotten and we definitely overindulged on the dessert trolley but what a treat! Definitely recommend to any food lover!

Lovely place to stay manned by friendly and professional staff where we stayed in a cosy garden bedroom. We booked for a two night stay which included a five course dinner on one evening. Warning! do not have anything to eat for many hours before this five course banquet as the portions are substantial! Quality of the food was excellent...

I have just returned from a wonderful stay at this delightful hotel. The staff were absolutely charming and attentive. My room was lovely and full of character. Afternoon tea is a must and the food was fresh and delicious. I cannot wait to go back.

This was a relaxing three day break. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a nice garden view. The food was good but not outstanding. The staff were excellent, so friendly and cheerful which made our stay so pleasant. Downside is that there is no tv in the rooms. There is a television room but the television is steam driven...

Some friends and I had planned on a 4 night stay at this wonderful place during our Ireland trip. We found Ballymaloe to be so beautiful and restful that we rearranged our itinerary and stayed for 2 more nights. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds were comfortable. I cannot say enough about the staff. So warm and helpful...

Ballymaloe House will not suit everyone. The lack of a TV in the rooms will probably come as a shock to some, but that's part of the environment created here to help people get away from the rush and bother of the modern world. Our room (the Blue Room) was large and nicely furnished, the bed was firm but reasonable,...

We spent a long weekend at the Ballymaloe Hotel. What a fantastic place it is. The food as you would expect is amazing. Particularly breakfast. The rooms are lovely. We stayed in the main house and our room was huge.

This really is a beautiful spot, myself and my girlfriend returned from a fantastic night feeling genuinely rested. The food was exquisite with much of the produce coming from the farm itself and the breakfast was one of the best that we've ever had. We'll be back again soon I hope.
